    Well, we just clinched our fourth highest Big Ten finish over the past decade. Sixth isn’t too far off the top 5 finish we were all aiming for before the season started.

    ^^ Agree, not bad at all. I'd like to see the national pundits that picked IU to finish higher than MD and Wisconsin, or for that matter, Minn. CAM has done, I think, an impressive job of largely turning this team around from about the mid-way point of the season. As KoB has posted above, our D has turned into one of the best in the B1G, and even nationally, during the B1G season. That gives reason for optimism going into next season. Get some outside shooting and improved play at the point, and our guys will start to win a lot of games. (Oh, and I am selfishly, and unabashedly, hoping that Morgan does in fact return for a monster senior season. I think he will -- but hoping for sure.)

    I don't know, but you mentioning their "bench mob" makes me wish we could play them again. I can't wait until Archie has his guys in here and we mop the floor with Nebraska every year.

    Class move by Jordan Bohannon of Iowa last night. Had chance to break Chris Street's school record of consecutive made free throws. Missed on purpose. In a sport that is filled with all negative right now I thought it showed class and awareness.

    You know we aren't the ones getting him, right? Our coaches are giving him as much attention as they can.

    Ot. My son just pitched his first 2 innings of college baseball. Struck out 4 gave up 1 hit and no runs.

    It’s kind of weird that he had the combined loss total of IU, UK and Louisville tee’d up and ready to go.

    He went through, and overcame, a lot, including kidney failure. Great to see him make it through it and finish well. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/college/2018/02/25/ron-patterson-went-iu-basketball-syracuse-back-home-iupui/371103002/

    Just sad is all I can say. I am not trying to throw around any insults as anyone is free to question what Romeo is going to do. It is one of the things I love about this forum, free expression without being bullied or shamed. In today's society being able to comment without rhetoric or being shouted down is rare. I come here because we can have open honest discussion, which I see disappearing on a daily basis, which just makes me sad. Truly one of the reasons I like coming here is the atmosphere HSN has fostered. Trust me how rare it is! The one thing I think we have already learned is CAM's recruiting prowess and how good he has already proved to be. Facts, not assumptions.

    Artesian (HSN 3.0 member), posted a couple of days, Mr. Langford supposedly contacted an IU trustee that is a friend with, to attend the McDonalds game with them. Don't if it's true or not, but this would seem to be a strong omen. This plus will RL make another trip to B'ton as Mile has referenced.

    When you’re pissed off an AAC coach is taking shots at your program for no reason but then you realize someone at least thinks you’re still relevant

    Its easy to quote the constitution but one needs to take a deeper look at what the founding fathers idea of seperation of church and State. Its ok to have prayer in congress in the Supreme court and oval office byt heaven forbid in our public schools. People beed to revisit their US History and Government to learn more about the men who founded this great country and gave us the right to argue about these ideals.

    Rob Johnson. Who pretty well shut him down last time. It was in the Hall though but Rob is a man on D. He has ate up a lot of guards this year.

    None of those teams play defense as good as IU does right now. Season numbers are great, but current numbers are better. Right now IU's defense is only behind MSU in the conference. And not to be that guy, but you played Michigan twice before you played us. You know, before Archie showed the world how easy it is to outcoach Matt Painter? So you're only true reputable is you shot 40% (which is below your average) against OSU. Big freakin deal.

    I am hoping for a Minnesota vs Rutgers matchup for the right to play us.

    Hookers must be approved for and paid in advance by the NCAA. This way no school offers a benefit that others do not. Fake classes should only be allowed for players averaging more than 10ppg. this would create some very interesting drama among teammates.

    The only issue with that is there's a reason athletes aren't supposed to do that now. All the sudden coaches can start promising ad deals to players. Come to our school and I can promise an $X deal with our local car dealership, etc., etc. You think kids flock to a school like UCLA now? Imagine Alford out there promising cameos on TV shows, movies, commercials, etc., etc. Granted this already happens to a point as we're even doing with Langford by saying it helps his brand most to come to IU, but it would uneven the playing field drastically more in terms of kids going to schools where they can get more ad dollars. I'm not saying I'm against this, just playing devil's advocate a bit and throwing out some of the potential aspects that would need to be thought through.

    It will come. Especially if TJD holds out as long as Romeo. He will get his very own vigil. RL is the current shiny recruit. TJD will be next year's.

    One interesting aspect: Penn State has had Ohio States number and likely matches up with them in the quarters. Fully expect Michigan to bounce Nebraska.

    He only has two visits left iirc, and the high school sectionals/tournament haven’t even started yet. If CAM doesn’t see him between now and then, then there may be cause for concern. Don’t go all dbmhoosier on us just yet.

    Am I the only person who thinks we can give Purdue trouble? If Green can get it going in our first game and come in with momentum, I actually really like how we match up to Purdue. I think Green/Rojo can give Thompson as big of a challenge as he has had all year and the emergence of Smith recently could be a big difference maker.

    I'd like another shot at Purdue, assuming a win on Thursday night. I liked CAM's strategy last time to shut down the perimeter and not double Haas, and an upset win over Purdue would be that signature win we've been looking for all year. And, you know, rivalry win and all that goodness.

    I think Sean Miller is the smallest of the bigger name coaches that will be in trouble. I think they started with him because of that. I’m waiting for Cal, K, Izzo, Self, to say how disgusted they are only to be in hot water weeks later. I’d be shocked if any more comes out for a while though. Either right after the season is over or right before next season is when there will be some turmoil if I had to guess.

    If you read my other posts I’ve repeatedly said that I’m not accusing or suggesting that he’s guilty. Of course Archie doesn’t know everything about Sean. And I’ve never suggested that he does. But again, Archie did coach under and with Sean for several years. They inevitably recruited together. Is it really that far fetched to think that Archie knew Sean was paying players? I certainly don’t think so. Doesn’t mean he was doing it.
